Hounds Tooth and Excitement!

Good Morning Lovelies!

First a note to Michelle that asked a question abotu the flakies I sent Nihrida.  I cannot remember what exactly they are called, I will take a picture of the bottle tonight and post it tomorrow for ya hun!  I did get ti at Micheal's Craft store though.  And just fyi, the color dissolves once it has sat in polish for like 10 minutes, so it needs to be either mixed and immediately applied, or sprinkled on wet polish and sealed with top coat.  And tell your mom I said Hi and thank you!  I'll pass along the compliment!


Ok, back to today's post...

First I just gotta get this outa my system.....
WOOOOOOOOOOOHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   I set a new personal record on Bench last night!  I benched 210lbs!   I am so excited I was bouncing around all evening!  Not only is it exciting to do, but to do it while dieting down (which usually means less strength and less energy) is just the icing on the cake!  And it went up so easy!  I was SHOCKED!  Rob said he should have loaded at least 215, cause 210 went up so easy he has no doubt I coulda gotten it!  I'm not trying to gloat, or fish for compliments, I am just so thrilled I had to share!


Ok on to today's mani!
You know now I was talking about Rob polish hunting for me yesterday?  Well...he isn't the only one!  About a week or so ago, we went to Mom's for dinner (we go every Tuesday night), and she handed me 3 polishes she had picked up for me when she made a recent dollar store run!  They ROCKED!  I never have luck finding good polish there!  I forgot to take a pic of the other two, but I have 1 to show you today! 

Sally Hansen "Sassy Frost"
 
It's on of those "It's grey, NO it's Khaki Green, NO, it's gold, No..." Kinda colors!
It reminds me of tweed almost.  And as soon as I saw it I know what I wanted to do with it!


I started off with 3 coats of the Sally Hansen "Sassy Frost"
Then I broke out M63 and stamped on the hounds tooth pattern with black special polish.

 
I absolutely LOVED the way this came out!  
See, in the sun you can see the greyish tone a bit.


THANKS MOM!!!!

Well folks, that's it for today!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Brooke said...

Oh my gosh! I forgot to comment on your hair in the last post! I love it! It looks really good, I love the funky-ness of it!!

My Sassy Frost didn't look this good on me, it looks great on you and I love the addition of the konad.

Honey, you just be careful with your ''benching''. We don't want you to get hurt!
The polish your mother got for you looks amazing and your stamping - perfect!

Jessica said...

Yay congrats on a new bench weight! Your nails look great and your hair rocks! I'm jealous of that hair!

gildedangel said...

That mani is so cute! You benched 210?!? Gulp, that's two of me!

Phyrra said...

You make houndstooth look cool :)

Nicole said...

That's perfect for a houndstooth print! Love it. I rarely find good DT polishes myself, I did manage to about two months ago, but that's been it! Shame, too.

Lily nail said...

i loooove this konadicure !!

Congratulations on your 210 milestone! I could never conceive of such strength, to think of you getting it up easily (while dieting down) is simply amazing.
You chose the perfect color and pattern combination for that mani. It reminds me of ladies who lunch with their pinkies in the air, it's so super elegant, proper and rich. LOL.

Emma said...

awesome nails! i'm the kinda girl that struggles with just the bar...so kudos to you! :)

SeeingSunshine said...

210 lbs? Seriously? Wow! Congrats.

And i love the konad! That's my favorite plate.

Thank you so much for answering my questions! I'm glad to hear you found it at Micheal's, I have one in my city. Thanks for telling me they dissolve, I was going to dump some in a bottle of clear! I'll give my Mom your message. Thanks again! Michelle

Skulda said...

AAAHHHHH!! That hounds tooth is adorable!
I can't wait to be able to order my first konad set! I think that will be one of my first plates! too cool!

Lucy said...

That's a fantastic manicure. I love the houndstooth pattern. No one has luck like Brooke when it comes to getting DollarStore polishes. Nice that your Mom found some good polishes for you.
